Vineyard Notes
The Viognier fruit used to make this wine was grown in Tyro, VA.
Production Notes
After pressing, this wine was first inoculated with a non-saccharomyces yeast strain to promote intense aromatics. Subsequently, it was inoculated with a standard saccharomyces strain to complete its cool, slow fermentation.
Winemaker Notes
Our 2016 Viognier offers a perfumed nose of tropical fruit and apricot which is complimented by a softly tannic palate reminiscent of honeysuckle and passionfruit. All of these wonderful flavors linger on the palate.
Food Pairing Notes
grilled seafood topped with peach salsa

Recently split a case of assorted wines with my daughter. So far, the Viognier is my favorite. No wonder it's named Virginia's official grape. Chateau Morrisette has done an excellent job!
